Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Malicious Software Removal Tool can be downloaded and run separately. Go to the default home page and download it. Each month it has the newest version. Once downloaded you can run it anytime you want, as many times as you want. I run it once a week when I do my full Norton Antivirus and Windows Defender scans.
Thanks for the article. Thx. to Kyle and Kenneth, too, this was very helpful!I wondered when this tool scanned myself. Now I know how to use it and where to get it.
Whether MSRT is or isnt part of Windows Defender, WD is a great program. Its set out well has extra features ( I know the features are native to Xp ) but for those that dont know that , theyre introduced to them by WD. Its free, its Windows, it works great, so whats the problem?
